Something new is being offered at this CSW - A Visionary Space -
For the first time (that we are aware), a new creative visionary space will be held at the 59th United Nations (UN) Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Parallel Event in March 2015.Traditionally, the UN CSW hosts UN & government-led meetings & presentations. The NGO Parallel Event hosts similar meetings, workshops and presentations led by NGOs from around the globe, all focused on the issues and challenges faced by women and girls around the world. In a nutshell, in general, both focus on ‘what is’ and what to do about it.
IMAGINE … distinguishes itself on a few fronts. It invites a creative & visionary focus on ‘what can be’. Its intention is to create a space to imagine, nurture and continue to birth a future that celebrates the feminine. This space will be held over a number of days (during the first week of the CSW). In this, it is a go-to place for people to gather and to host emergent conversations, as well as a space for interactive installations, workshops, circles, performances & screenings in alignment with this intention.
